These are from my experience:

1. Once a bug tracker is chosen and used, it is not very easy to migrate 
to another, because the database cannot be moved (AFAIK, no bug tracker 
supports this feature), and the URL is recorded in many places, such as 
an old manual.

2. A bug tracker with rich features looks nice, but it's very difficult 
to maintain.

3. Integration of e-mail with a bug tracker is really problematic. The 
main cause of this is that the behavior of MUA varies from MUA to MUA.

So I think the oldest method is the best: just having a file named BUGS. 
If you want to refer to mails related to a bug, you can write a URL of 
the list archive. If you use YAML <> as the format, it 
would be easy to write a helper application for it.

What do you think?
